Five Ways To Wear Baseball Caps
We men owe a lot to those stylish Scandinavians, so what better way to doff a cap to them than by going understated, clean and minimal in the head wear department? And everywhere else, for that matter.
From The Streets
The love affair between high fashion and streetwear is still very much in its honeymoon period. However, the look can be more than a little OTT for most people’s tastes. So before you rock up to the pub in a floor-length Vetements anorak and a pair of Ozweegos, consider giving a nod to the scene in a more subtle manner.
Opt for a 5-panel or dad cap style, along with a hoodie or logo T-shirt and some cropped trousers or jeans. That way you can embrace the streetwear aesthetic in public, without looking like a try-hard.
The two annual periods of limbo between the scorching heat of one season and the frigid cold of the next can be notoriously difficult to dress for. But ditching the bobble hat or bare head for a baseball cap is a great place to start.
Navigate such style seas with a wool/twill cap (depending on season), then throw on your favourite transitional jacket and layer underneath accordingly.
Tips For Wearing A Baseball Cap
- Take the sticker off the brim, for the love of God. You’re not 50 Cent.
- Make sure it fits snug on your head. There’s nothing like frantically chasing a windswept cap down the street to ruin your carefree look.
- On the same note, make sure it’s not cutting off your circulation. A big red line across your forehead isn’t likely to elevate your look either.
- Wear it backwards seldomly and carefully. Never wear it sideways.
- Opt for simplicity over showiness wherever possible. A plain cap is classier and will go with more of your wardrobe.
- If you’re going to wear a cap for the day, make sure hat hair isn’t going to be an issue later on.
